The Orchid in Chinese Painting

The Smithsonian presents “The Orchid in Chinese Painting” at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington DC. With 20 works dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries, the exhibit shows the long history of Cymbidiums in Chinese art and culture. For thousands of years in East Asia, orchids have been symbols of beauty and elegance. They have also represented moral character, friendship, loyalty, and patriotism. The display runs until July 17th.
